Help me out :-\. :stayontopic: What is the topic?
No one can help you . Less if we talk under topic. Your understanding about insulation is as poor as Derekm's
The discussion branch came from an Englishman who insisted that wood cavity has the best insulation.
He is a man who has hardly seen snow on ground. "Extremely harsh winter", said Brother Adam. "Temp may go even under freezing point". WOW
From insulation values we can see that polystyrene foam has 10 times better insulation value than dry wood. And the beehive has allways moist or wet wood.
I should move my hives to log hive? - So said the Englishman. I wonder why?
But I understand because British beekeepers do not understand meaning of insulation. They ventilate hives like mad.
We in north put holes shut and keep the heat in.
If we want the room dry, we warm up it a little bit and relative air moisture makes the room dry.
